Freeman Lumber is one of the oldest family-run sawmill businesses in North America. Our first sawmill in Greenfield, Nova Scotia was established in 1832 when the village was settled.

Today, we produce approximately 70 million board feet of lumber and value added lumber products annually.

Forest Management

We fund silviculture on private lands. We pay for work we do on your land. You profit if we cut any valuable wood.

Under our Program you can improve the value of your lands. Our Program also allows you to transfer lands to your children without paying tax. We will even pay an accountant to help with estate planning.
